Hand Lettering #10: Personalized Birthday Magnet, Gemini

Happy Friday!!! :o)

Today I want to share with you a hand lettered personalized birthday magnet I made for a friend crafter/blogger. She is an amazing person, very creative and supportive. :o)

How I made the magnet...

I cut a 2" diameter circle base from a Canson XL Mixed Media Paper.

I stamped adorable Gemini from Mama Elephant 'Cosmic Stars' stamp set on the circle base, hand lettered word Gemini in block letter handwriting style and friend's birthday date with Roman numerals.

I prepared various hand lettered samples during my personal challenge Celebrating 30 Days of Pisces 2017 to color during a 7th 30 Day Coloring Challenge by Kathy Racoosin of The Daily Marker. This one also. I still have a lot of unfinished samples from my personal challenge and still didn't write a wrap up post... Well, I have the whole time in the world. :o)

I colored the sample in watercolor technique, using Distress Inks.

A friend gave me bunch of magnet sheets last year to make my own magnets. I cut a magnet circle with large scissors and glued it together with the colored circle using universal UHU glue. I pressed the magnet with a 32 cm x 32 cm, 1 cm thick glass plate and left it pressed for an hour.

As a finishing touch, I coated Gemini's outfits with Clear Wink of Stella. Love the shimmer and my friend too!!! :o)

Dimensions: d = 51 mm (d = 2")
